Programs We Offer

The Goal of Little League is to...
Assist children in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being.  By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty, the Little League Baseball program is designed to develop superior citizens rather than superior athletes.

Riviera Little League is located at the Southeast end of Lago Seco Park in Torrance.  Riviera Little League is a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to provide a safe, instructional and fun environment for the children in South Torrance (CA), ages 4-14.  Chartered under the umbrella of Little League International, Inc, and Little League District 27 of Southern California, we share a mission to "to promote, develop, supervise, and voluntarily assist in all lawful ways, the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball."

Riviera Little League was started in 1957.  In 1965, Riviera Little League moved to Lago Seco Park and has been there ever since.  For over 50 years Riviera Little League has been an anchor of the South Torrance community.  Our non-profit organization operates as an all-volunteer program. We rely on the support of our network of families, local businesses, corporate and community sponsors.  Through this outpouring of support, Riviera Little League continues this tradition and mission so that more than 500 boys and girls, ages 4-14, in eight different divisions of baseball programs can play every season.
